After a nice welcome, Maria showed us the comfy rooms and immediately offered us tea and coffee. You can easily walk to the town centre where you will find plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops. The house is lovely and the breakfast was very good, Maria asked if we need something several times. All the B&B on our Ireland trip where wonderful but after staying here we where especially relaxed.
Just one minor thing: there was no shower gel or soap in the bathroom.
If we visit Killarney again some day, we will gladly stay at this place again :)

It's hard to just pass by at such a lovely looking B&B. We stayed with Maria for one night and everything was perfect. Location is great, so everything is in walking distance and can be reached easily. Besides, Maria was helpful in explaining nearby attractions and also, she lit up fire place in the common room to create a nice atmosphere in the evening. I enjoyed that night in there. At this time the room was 25pp. not including breakfast. Asking for +5 € (+10€ for irish breakfast) is a bit much in my opinion so I would rather prefer to go to the french bistro for a much better deal. It's called Petit Delice and is just a one minute walk..

Dear Stephano,

Thank you for your feedback. However I would like to reply to this by stating some factual information for you.

First of all the ' common room ' you refer to is actually a lounge for guests to relax and read a book or watch some television and meet other guests if you wish. I feel that a common room is a room that is found in hostel or other type of large property.
Many Bed and Breakfasts do not have a television lounge. Also there is a television in the bedroom for guests who wish to have some privacy.


As regards your comments relating to the breakfast this is my opinion. First of all I am not sure how you can say that there is better value to be found in a nearby French bistro, as you did not have any breakfast here. Nor did you see what was on offer for breakfast.

As a comparison I have gotten some prices for you. Please see below:

French bistro ; Pot of coffee € 2.95
Plain Croissant € 1.35

This costs € 4.30 for 1 person. That is coffee and a croissant.

This is my continental breakfast for € 5.00
Choice of cereal
Orange Juice
Pot of Tea or Pot of coffee
Homemade soda bread
White bread
Fresh hot scone
Jam, marmalade and butter
Toast.

Also if anyone wants anything extra I never charge for this.

Please explain to me as I cannot understand how the French Bistro (which is also very nice), is better value than what I have shown. Also you have to pay €1.50 for parking per hour on the street by the bistro.


As for the price of full Irish breakfast, on top of all of the above in the continental breakfast you get ;

2 rashers
2 sausages
2 boiled, fried, poached or scrambled eggs
Tomatoes

I hope you can see value in the above and also there is a choice of Breakfast or no breakfast.

We happened upon this Bed and Breakfast late at night in the pouring rain. The owners were very nice and made us feel at home. Even offered their umbrella when going back out. Maria made us a nice breakfast in the morning and gave us lots of tips and information about Ireland. Even gave us directions to the Gap of Dunloe. The beds were comfortable. It was very close to the town- walking distance. Would definitely go back!

My brother, boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights during our Ireland journey Oct 26-Nov 7 and when we arrived in Killarney there was a B&B we were about to pull into and I said " no lets go down 1 more house" and we ended up at the Orchard House. It was awesome. The owners were what made it so wonderful. The gorgeous house and rooms were a plus. Everything was so well kept and clean. She was cleaning herself every morning. I love how much time they dedicate to their place, it really shows. The owners both gave us great advice of where to go next which we took, it was a time saver and exciting experience taking a rental car onto the ferry. I can't express how much I enjoyed this place. The location is great as well, very short walking distance to many shops, pubs,restaurants etc. The B &B's Breakfast was filling and delicious always freshly cooked for whenever you arrive. I loved this place. We will be back to Killarney Ireland and we WILL be staying here again at the Orchard House someday in the future!

This is by far the best place to stay in Killarney! The owners are friendly, helpful, and the house is clean and cozy. Love, love, love it. It is just around the corner from all the shops and restaurants. The room was warm and quiet with problem free wi fi, which was not the case at other places we have stayed. Definitely worth staying while in Killarney.

Another B and B we chanced upon towards the end of our trip. This a lovely house with a very friendly landlady. The room was quite small but lovely with a good size shower room. We had a lovely breakfast in a very cosy dining area. The park was off road in the driveway and in the morning when we had packed to leave we were able to leave our car there as we wanted another look around Killarney. All round good value

Orchard House is in a fabulous location, just minutes from the shops, pubs and restaurants of high st.

I stayed in the double room with my brother, and we had a great stay. Breakfast was huge and fabulous, and was an easy drive to explore Dingle Penninsula. When we left, we were very greatful to have the owners advice on the best routes to drive up to Galway. our GPS had directed us to take a highway route, but taking a 30 minute detour suggested gave us a gorgeous coastal scenic view. Very happy we stayed at Orchard house!
